My 3-year old granddaughter understood ‘yesterday’ as ‘lasterday’. This seemed so reasonable that the whole family used if for two years. Alas, she has now converted to ‘yesterday’ and we feel a sense of loss.
Cute. The pronunciation similarity seems a bit of a stretch for eggcornicity, but a web search reveals that “lasterday” is in fairly common use, typically to mean not yesterday, but some indeterminate time before yesterday.
